The Pride Academy PTSA is comprised of a board of eight volunteers and seasonal committee members. Board members are elected annually whereas committee members can be temporary volunteers or a voted board member. Board positions include President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Auditor, Parliamentarian, Historian, and Membership.
The Pride Academy PTSA’s commitment to unified advocacy on behalf of all of our children is best reflected in its motto: Every child. One voice. The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for their children.
Here at PRIDE Academy, the strength of the PTA is found in the many volunteers who give their time, talents and energy into growing the areas our teachers, administration or students need assistance. Whether you can volunteer once a year or once a week, every member makes a difference.
PTSA is part of the fabric of the United States’ public-education system and a trusted partner to millions of parents, families, educators and community members, as it advocates for education, welfare, health and safety of all children.
